Clugston Distribution Services, one of the UK’s leading independent logistics companies and part of the Clugston Group, has recently invested almost half a million pounds in further expanding its fleet of flatbed trailers.
The company has purchased an additional 20 new flatbed trailers, fifteen of which are extendable as well as five standard flatbed trailers, all of which are currently in service.
Clugston’s new trailers are individually designed for the transportation of various products up to 22 metres in length and are also built to full British Steel specification requirements.
The investment comes at an exciting time for the company, having also only recently completed a six-figure upgrade to the truck and trailer maintenance facility in Scunthorpe. Equipped with leading-edge equipment, the facility offers a full turnkey solution for maintaining a wide variety of major truck manufacturers’ commercial vehicles and trailers as well as a commercial vehicle MOT test station.
Tim Doggett, distribution director, said, “We are experiencing an increased demand for our services across all our industry sectors, from bulk food, powder and fuel distribution through to specialist silo evacuations.
“With an incredible 80 years’ experience in the flatbed sector, the investment in these new trailers demonstrates our commitment to increasing our presence in the market, alongside continuing to provide high levels of service.
“In total, over the course of the last three years, we have invested nearly two million in improving services for our customers.”
